At the start of the 1970s, singer Jaye P Morgan completely reivented herself. In an effort to stay contemporary and appeal to a younger audience, she discarded her conservative image and updated her repertoire. Sporting a hip new look and attitude, she would be almost unrecognizable from the persona that she projected during the previous two decades. You won't find any trace of her big band/supper club sound in this self titled album from 1976. The light disco rhythm heard in the opening track is pervasive throughout several others. Her style here is obviously more funky. She's even backed by the ubiquitous black female soul group. Produced by a young David Foster, the album includes songs by composers Stevie Wonder and Valerie Simpson. It was originally released on a small west coast label. At the time, Jaye P's celebrity was largely generated as a game show panelist, where she gained notoriety for her risque commentary, especially on "The Gong Show." Unfortunately, the career move may have diminished her reputation as a singer. With scant promotion and limited distribution, the LP sold poorly. I am surprised that it has been reissued on CD. Then again, the Japanese have a talent for rescuing obscure albums from oblivion. Although some fans may not quickly embrace this new style, Jaye P, to her credit, was never one to remain a nostaglia act. She always continued to evolve as an artist in order to survive in show business. If you are thinking of buying this CD, don't hesitate. It will likely go out of print as quickly as the LP did.

I am 61 years old and I vaguely remember a singer named Jaye P. Morgan from an early TV show called "Your Hit Parade". It was an ensemble group of singers that sang and performed the weeks top radio hits every Saturday night. In the 70's she made the rounds of all the talk shows (Merv Griffin, Mike Douglas etc.) and the various game shows (Hollywood Squares, To Tell The Truth etc.), most notably she was a regular on Chuck Barris' "The Gong Show". Her recording career pretty much considered a thing of the past. But in 1976 a new relatively unknown producer was hired to put together a group of session players to play behind her on an album. That producer was David Foster, who would produce and write for Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion, Cher, Chicago, Boz Scaggs, Toto, The Tubes and bunches more.
David put together some of the hottest session "cats" including Lee Rittenauer, Jeff Porcaro, Bill Champlin and others. They put out an album that I just bought and heard for the first time October 2010. I AM TRUELY BLOWN AWAY ! ! ! The writing, arranging, playing and production is phenominal. Jaye P. is as current sounding by today's standards right now on material she sang in 1976. She covers Earth Wind and Fire's "Can't Have Love" with a voice that would make Maurice White proud.
The lion's share of the tunes are of that 70's well produced disco genre, with the "bouncy octive bass lines used by 'The Stones" and "Rod Stewart" in that era. The dance theme is infectious without sounding "campy". To hear this now you have to wonder, where was the promo department in 1976. This album should have gone somewhere sales-wise, it is a sad state of affairs, hearing this 34 years too late.
As the title says "The Best Music You've Never Heard--By The Best Singer You've Never Heard Of"
